The QNAP TS-419P Turbo NAS
QNAP released a new look for their NAS servers in January at CES. The new line has a cleaner, smoother look that is more appealing to the consumer market since it looks less enterprise like.
There are a lot of features right on the front of the TS-419P. On the lower left side you will find the power button and one touch USB backup. This feature makes it easy to copy the content from your USB devices to the NAS. At the top is the display for easy access to the basic setup features as well. Your four drive sleds are also accessible in the front of the unit.
The TS-419P is surprisingly light since the power supply is external. With the PSU outside of the box there isn't a lot of hardware to cool, so the unit is very quiet and still able to keep the drives cool. Here we see some of the cooling vents.
All of the power and data connections (other than the front mounted USB) are located on the back of the unit.
The other side of the NAS is just a standard case.
QNAP has always been very generous with their accessories. The PSU is a brick style and it uses a standard power cord. QNAP has included several sets of keys to lock the drives and they have even included an extra set of screws just in case you misplace a few.
